Just wanted to chime in and say that I did this one a month ago, and the keg is quickly getting
drained at this point. 1.058/1.012 were my gravities. I mashed at 150 for a thinner finish to
let the ho...

I must have really been mean to my carboy - one day soaking with oxyclean and I still can't
scrub away the remanents of a ring near the top. It sure is hard to get and sort of serious
scrubbing done w...

I had bought the oxyclean, and since no one is shouting at me not to use it, that's what I did.
I couldn't believe the foaming with that stuff! I'll be scrubbing and rinsing tonight - I hope

I've been too lazy with my cleaning. After all that work with bottling, I tend to let the
drained carboy just soak in regular water for a bit. Maybe I'll throw in a bit of one step.Now
I've got a prob...

Just a quick update on this beer... the head did eventually _mostly_ fall, so I racked to the
secondary after two weeks. It was still for a day or two, but then the temp dropped a couple
degrees in my...

Ya, boiling definitely makes sense. I can't imagine it's changing my process much either.That's
a good point about the fact that some bottles would be really carbonated if I wasn't stirring
Posted in thread: More yeast or more sugar? on 09-12-2005 at 02:31 AM
So, I'd like to hear opinions on general ways to ensure a happy level of carbonation. The last
two batches I made never fully got to where I wanted them. I used 5 ounces of priming sugar
boiled in one...

Thanks for the advice. It's been 6 days now and it's still there. I'll wait it out for the rest

Brew 5, questions 100 and 101:My friend and I just did a Happy Holiday Ale from Midwest
Supplies. It went well, and it smells pretty good. It's been bubbling away for about 5 days
now, but it's pretty...

So, how do you know when to drop the temp back down? When you first bottle, you are supposed to
keep it nice and warm, right? What would happen if you continued to age at the warm temps?
What's the id...
